Who Can I Connect You To?

After a lovely August recess, brain-break, and family time, I am BACK AT THE CONNECTIONS!

Over the last 30 days, I continued to help people through the connections that I have helped me and my business.  It’s a cliche’, but “Pay It Forward” works.

I connected:

  • A financial advisor to a tax expert to help a retiree who gotten into an annuity scam.  They assessed the fraud, corrected it, and saved the retiree about $76,000!

  • An Anesthesiologist needed an asset manager for various investments, properties, and private equity

  • My haircut guy wanted to install a new sink at his hair cut shop, introduced him to a local plumber

  • A business client had a pipe burst in an upstairs bathroom, eventually flooding the finished garage below.  My restoration client sorted out the insurance claim, and the sub-contractors needed for the home repair

  • Found a set of sponsors for our new fall season!

  • Small business owner was tired of doing payroll on qbo, so I connected her to a payroll company that specializes in companies of LESS THAN 10 employees

  • Forced two bankers to meet for beers…. Okay, they did needed forcing…

  • An interesting AI startup, that helps Customer Services Reps with the language and communications, to a massive disability insurance company’s 800# division

  • Lastly, and the one that warms the heart, a fire prevention company wanted to get to the Bahamas to help post-Dorian, and I have a friend who works at Greenpeace who helped the fire prevention company access to the area

For the next 120 days, through the end of the year, I’ll update you all on the connections made.  Need an intro? Want a service? Or, want to market your services? Reach out!

WCICYT: Two GREAT Connectors!

HELLO Connectors!  This week in "Who Can I Connect You To?"

This week, I'll do my usual list of connections, and introduce to you 2 GREAT connectors who helped me here in Mill Valley.

My Realtor Beth Brody (


With her Lauren Bacall voice, Beth is a master networking on top her residential real estate expertise.  After we settled in, she immediately connected us to a cleaning service, a landscaper, a donation center (you discover a ton of things you do NOT need in a move!), and an introduction to the developer who renovated our home!   Beth continues to refer business to me, and I to her!  Can't wait to buy that income property....

I recently joined the Mill Valley Chamber of Commerce,  I met Jim Welte ( 415-388-9700) who not only featured ME in a Chamber newsletter but then went on to connect me to a local group, a printing company, and is helping me introduce HS kids to the trades!

If you're ever in Mill Valley, looks us up!

And, lastly, my connections made:

  • A business owner received a collections letter from the EDD.  I referred him to Bob Crane of

  • Two rugby teammates, from different teams I plated with, were at the same match.  I connected them via social media, and now they're on the same club!
